Status category track Automation for JIRA


Can I have check all yellow/color status to green/color status instead of individual status as the trigger? 

I want to have an automation rule execute when the issue status [In Progress] to [Done]. I can add trigger [In Progress] to [Done], but my requirement is to check all yellow category status like "In Progress" to green[Done].

Hi @Masudur Rahman 

Are you asking if there is a trigger on StatusCategory changing?  If so, the answer is "not yet".  There is an item in the Code Barrel backlog to add this:

There are a couple of work-arounds, depending upon how often you want to update and other field usage:

  • If you are using the resolution field, you can trigger on a change to that field to detect issues moved to a "done" category field, or...
  • If you do not need to immediately execute the rule, you can use a scheduled rule with JQL detecting changes to status category within recent time.  For example:
project = myProject
AND statusCategoryChangedDate >= -1h
AND statusCategory = "Done"

Best regards,


Hi @Bill Sheboy 

Thank you for the quick reply, Yes, was looking for a status category trigger.

The workaround can be done by a scheduled trigger which will have some delay and we want to have real-time instead of scheduled. 


Thank you.

Thanks for confirming...

There is a 3rd work-around to just check for a status change (transition) and then follow that with a condition check on status category.  That should do what you want immediately after a change.


Thank you very much. :)
